Self Service

This is also a “walk in and do it yourself” process of enrolment. In this form of enrolment process, an applicant walks in to an Enrolment Centre and fill an Enrolment Form (hard copy). The completed form is handed over to the Enrolment Office who in turn captures the biometric data of the applicant and process the data in the completed Enrolment Form.

Step 1

Applicant walks in to an Enrolment Centre and gets an Enrolment Form.

Step 2

Applicant fills the Enrolment Form, providing the required demographic information.

Step 3

Applicant approaches the Enrolment Officer who collects the filled form and inputs the details into the Enrolment Application.

Step 4

Applicant verifies and confirms the enrolment data on the system.

Step 5

Applicant has his/her headshot photograph, fingerprints and signature captured.

Step 6

Applicant has his/her supporting documents scanned.

Step 7

Applicant’s enrolment is acknowledged; two slips are generated and given to the applicant: (a) Transaction Slip (b) NIN Slip indicating completion of enrolment.

Assisted Service

This is a “walk in and get assistance from a Support Officer” method of enrolment. This method involves the same steps as the Self Service one above, but in this case the applicant cannot fill the Enrolment Form on his/her own and walks in to the Enrolment Centre to be assisted by a Support Officer whose responsibility it is to guide the applicant in correctly filling the Enrolment Form with the required information.

Mobile Service

The Mobile-Service process involves an applicant enrolling for the NIN by going to any of the Mobile Enrolment Stations available in his/her neighbourhood at any point in time. For this method of enrolment, the applicant may request for an Enrolment Form and personally complete it or request for assistance from the Support Officer. This method is valid and complete after the biometric data of the applicant is captured and the data in the filled Enrolment Form processed by the Enrolment Officer at the station.
